Are you an Urban Outdoorsman? Do you live in the city yet have a passion for the outdoors and rush to nature’s backyard on the weekends? So do we, yet during the week in the city we notice a different type of Urban Outdoorsman, the homeless community who sleep on the streets almost every night. So to help out our fellow outdoorsmen this Christmas, we are hosting a Free Movie Night where we will collect outdoor oriented gift boxes to give from one type of Urban Outdoorsman to another.
We are asking you and your friends to help by filling a shoe box with the suggested items below and bring it to our movie night. Your homemade, outdoor-oriented boxes will go directly into the hands of the homeless on Christmas Day via our partners at TL Made and the Homeless Coalition of San Francisco who will pass them out at their organization. Hope to see you there!
Items to Include in your Christmas Box:
Refillable Water Bottle
2 Cliff Bars
2 Pre-stamped Postcards
- A Simple Letter of Encouragement
During the event we will use our 90's style polaroid camera to take a photo of the person or group responsible for compiling the outdoor-oriented-built-with-love Christmas box, and then will place the photo inside with the outdoor supplies. When our team delivers the boxes to the homeless community, we will take a photo of the recipient holding the gifter’s picture, and upload it to our website so people know exactly who their gift went to.
We have partnered with The SF Homeless Coalition to make sure these boxes get into the hands of Urban Outdoorsman that are making an effort to better . We have also partnered with Adrenaline Lacrosse, and they will be donating 200-400 pairs of socks to include in each of your boxes!
This event is free for everyone! Even if you cannot bring a gift, we would still be thrilled to have you and your friends come enjoy the festivities!
Please share this event amongst your friends, family, co-workers, or anyone else that embraces an outdoor lifestyle!

We are Urban Outdoorsman because we live in the city yet have a passion for the outdoors. During the week we notice another type of Urban Outdoorsman, the homeless community. This Christmas we want to positively impact our fellow Urban Outdoorsman that sleep in the streets almost every night, by giving outdoor oriented gift boxes. We have partnered with the Coalition on Homelessness and TL Made and will be giving gift boxes to members of their organization to help brighten their holiday season!
